I felt like sweet water in the dead sea. Never able to mix in, but water all the same.
Maybe it was really me. who was the problem in my dreams
maybe it was me who crushed all my fantasies.
I couldn’t really ever tell why I never got along.
besides the fact that friendship relied on currencies.
I didn’t put a price on friendship.
But that didn’t mean I was free.
in the end, I’m happy to be me.
for the right company.
I submitted this in a competition @graciechicksblog and I’m humbled to know that it won first place 🙂 Definitely check out her blog, there’s a lot of wonderful stuff to read. She event started a brilliant campaign on “Tackling Racism with Haikus“. I actually wrote one not too long ago!
I hope everyone who has felt alone finds their sweet cool pool of company to resolve in. It’s not easy being different as a child, and being an adult doesn’t somehow magically change things either. That pain of being alone is still the same.
You start to doubt yourself.
but don’t worry, as long as you keep your doors open, with time you’ll find the right ppl come your way and you won’t have to chase after them either.
all the best ❤
